ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

In March of 2011, Harrisburg, PA native Andrew "Koji" Shiraki and Colormake partnered with the advocacy group Resolve to share the stories of communities in central Africa that have been affected by the Lord's Resistance Army, or LRA. Primarily using children as soldiers, this brutal rebel group has existed for 25 years by terrorizing remote villages in Uganda, South Sudan, Central African Republic, and the Congo. Koji and Resolve had a message - that the youth of America could have a role in bringing that violence to an end. Through photography, film, storytelling and music, The Resolve Tour urged audiences across the entire United States to call on their members of Congress to pay attention to the LRA, and to take action on it.

This summer, Koji is taking it one step further with The Amplify Peace Tour. Inspired by the stories of Ugandan women using songs to let their abducted children know that they are forgiven and will be welcomed back home, Koji and Colormake will be partnering with The Voice Project, an organization that is using the power of music and the radio to call these abducted soldiers home. Aside from the chance to participate in a community discussion at the end of the night, attendees of The Amplify Peace Tour will have the opportunity to lend their voices to a Voice Project/Colormake recording project that will be broadcasted to abducted LRA soldiers in the Congo, encouraging them to lay down their weapons and come home.

The Amplify Peace Tour will stop at the Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac on Friday, July 22, with special guests Jeff Pianki, Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers, The Good Lion (the new project of Luke Tower, formerly of the band Island View Drive), and DJ Drybones will spin after the live music ends. Tickets for this incredible show are just $7.00 in advance, available now at FusionShows.com, TheCrofoot.com, and at the Crofoot box office. Doors open at 7pm, all ages are welcome.
